Maria Fidelis Sixth Form - Enrichment Activities 2017/2018

Enrichment Activity Description
Model United Nations Model United Nations (MUN) is a weekly meeting society in which students simulate the debating that occurs at the United Nations. Students are assigned a specific country and then debate topics from that country's point of view, with the Security Council and the General Assembly being the most regularly simulated.
Seminar Series The Seminar Series is a weekly event at which an external speaker or a member of the school teaching staff deliver a seminar on a topic of either their choice, or a topic requested by the Sixth Form students. Previous speakers have included Ted Baker's lead historian, Peter McDonough, human rights expert Pushpinder Saini QC and Sir Keir Starmer QC, our local MP and shadow Brexit Minister.
Cultural Capital Society Designed to increase the students’ cultural awareness and expand their knowledge of their subjects beyond the curriculum, this society offers the opportunity to engage with an extensive range of cultural artefacts and to discuss them. This is done via weekly sessions in which a film, article or multiple pieces of art are discussed.
Film Club A-levels are an incredibly stressful time, so much so that students often find it difficult to switch off an relax. The Film Club, held on Friday's after school, is a chance for students to relax and unwind. 
Sixth Form Journal Commencing in September 2017, the Sixth Form Journal (name to be confirmed) will be an opportunity for students to write articles and explore ideas outside of their immediate subject areas. Published at the end of each half term, the journal will also provide students with further experience of meeting deadlines and writing to a brief/deadline, necessary both for academic purposes at A-levels as well as in Higher Education.
Subject Clubs Commencing in September 2017, our new Subject Clubs will give students the opportunities to engage with subjects beyond the syllabuses.
